Review of HALF-WITCH

Uncategorized

Lovely review of HALF-WITCH, from Megan Szmyd of @OFirehouseBooks, Old Firehouse Books in Fort Collins CO:

Half-Witch gave me the same atmospheric shivers that ‘The Bear and the Nightingale’ gave me; it’s got that same fairy-tale quality that makes every word seem a little bit like it’s shrouded in fog, like you are discovering the book as you are reading it. And it has that same weird blend of folk-lore and Christianity that makes for a wild and excellent contrast of ideas and themes and makes me want to just dig in and discuss this book. It’s a slightly creepy, unsettling, atmospheric, beautiful story about friendship and love and the journey it takes to get to those emotions, the trials humans face and the ways they change when faced with growing up and losing their ways. It’s about Loss. It’s about Finding. It’s about Being Made New. And while I don’t know if I really liked this book, I absolutely enjoyed it. (Also the cover is gorgeous. That’s important to note.)
